With the updated Tiger and Bonneville range up and about, Triumph seems to be getting ready to shift its attention to the Street Triple. A possible refresh to the line-up is expected to hit the road next year with an official unveil late this year (EICMA maybe?)
Our regular readers would remember that back in July last year, we had talked about an expected range of new Street Triples with a bigger heart. Well, these spy shots shared by VisorDown seem to be the first ever images of one of these models. Possibly getting a re-engineered version of the new in-line three cylinder 800 cc mill, the new Street Triples are expected to get four trims.
Following Triumph’s recent strategy of adding a range of variants, these new models are expected to start from a 110 bhp entry level trim with non-adjustable Kayaba suspension with a higher placed R rated version fitted with adjustable Showa forks and radially mounted Nissin brakes and along with a power output of about 115 bhp. A third touring model called RT is expected with 125 bhp of output along with several aids like half fairing, tons of charging points and attachments for baggage. A range topping RS version is also on cards which will be made available with Ohlins suspension and a brake setup by Brembo.
Several features like riding modes and coloured TFT instrumentation will be brought in depending on the variant. Switchable ABS and traction control are expected to be standard on all trims. Following Triumph’s policy of introducing the latest motorcycles soon upon their international introduction, expect the new Street Triples to make way here in a few weeks after their global launch.
